Music

St Catherine's enjoys a strong reputation for the excellence, inclusivity and variety of its music.  All girls are encouraged to get involved, and there are performing opportunities - solo and ensemble - to cater for all abilities and tastes.  Academic Music lessons focus on listening and appraising skills as well as composition and performance. 

Around 600 individual music lessons are given every week by a team of over 30 Visiting Music Teachers, and the School provides opportunities for all girls to play and sing in the many choral and instrumental ensembles on offer. These include nine choirs, the Symphony Orchestra, Camerata (the school’s top string ensemble), String Orchestra, Concert Band, Wind Band, Flute Choir, Brass Ensemble, Jazz Band, Harp Ensemble, Fife & Drum Band, rock bands and numerous chamber groups. Senior Choir, Camerata, Concert Band and Jazz Band also make regular overseas tours.

Should you wish to experience this exciting department in action please do not hesitate to contact me to make an appointment.
